Plan Ahead

Quelland, Janice (Jan) Edwards Kettlewell


Janice (Jan) Quelland was born to Leona and Ralph Kettlewell on December 6, 1934 in Sauk Centre, Minnesota.  She passed away after a short illness on January 20, 2021 surrounded by her family.

She grew up in Sauk Centre and graduated from Hamline University in 1956 with degrees in Health and Physical Education and minors in History and English.  While in college she was crowned Snow Queen and Butter Queen!

She married her college sweetheart, Ray Quelland, on October  14, 1956.  After moving to California, Georgia, Illinois and Wisconsin with the Navy, they settled in Farmers Branch in 1962.  She played golf, tennis and bridge as well as traveled the United States.

After retirement, Jan and Ray traveled internationally.  She loved to read and co-founded the First Tuesday Book Club in 2000 as well as being in a dinner club with monthly get togethers with long time friends.

Jan was a long time, very active member of Christ United Methodist Church.  She sang in the choir, attended a Sunday School class and was active in many groups.

She is survived by her husband of 64 years, Ray; daughters, Nancy Quelland, Betsy McKinney, Kay Humbert; son-in-law, Daniel Humbert; 4 grandchildren, Megan McKinney, Zachary McKinney, Sadie Humbert, Josiah Humbert and his son, Ziya.

A memorial will be held at a later date.  In lieu of flowers, the family suggest donations may be made to Christ United Methodist Church, 2807 Valwood Parkway, Farmers Branch, TX 75234.

Please leave the family condolences and share memories on this website.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"Everyone at North Dallas Funeral Home was very professional, kind, and caring, in all steps of the process from the first phone call to the service held at their location. They help to make the process as easy and comforting in my opinion as to be expected, I would recommend their service to anyone. Thank You to everyone who helped me and my family. Sincerely,"

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
